Самая читаемая статья недели в Forbes: идеальный выпускник. Как поступить во все лучшие ВУЗы США разом?

Есть два издания, которые я пролистываю в интернете даже при максимальной загруженности на работе – это Forbes и Vogue. Самая читаемая статья этой недели в Forbes – о том, как американский школьник поступил сразу во все лучшие университеты США.

В конце статьи есть ссылка на его эссе. Честно? Я не прослезилась. И меня эссе не тронуло. Но это именно тот тип эссе, написанный сложными книжно-научными словечками, который позволит поступить в классный ВУЗ. Американцы любят драму, любят тех, кто умеет быть громким на подиуме даже в простых эссе. Будь то семейная трагедия, которая сподвигла стать доктором, или кофе с деканом, за которым вы размечтались стать профессором математики – всё идёт в ход.

Наслаждайтесь, пока я между конференциями пытаюсь дописать забавный материал о профессиях-динозаврах, на которые больше не стоит идти учиться 😉

Всегда в вами,

Интересная статья об интимных отношениях в США

Так как статья переведена на русский язык, просто грех не поделиться! Я тоже обратила внимание, что американцы иначе подходят к построению отношений. Правда, завидев русскую женщину, очень часто идут напролом, особенно в более сельских регионах, где потенциальных невест не так много – это, к сожалению, уже клише. У немцев, точно так же, вы “встречаетесь, но не вместе”, пока об этом напрямую не поговорили. Хорошее чтиво для выходных!

New social reality: how China implementing the new citizens raiting solution may change our future

An episode form the Black Mirror coming true: what can be more exciting in the era of digitalisation? However, not everything looks so bright.

Already during the MoinBlockchain conference in Hamburg this year, I heard about different interconnected scoring systems, which may be implemented in European banks. People were thinking about connecting with Facebook, tracking the purchases..Nevertheless, how about a whole city? A country? What if your behaviour in the grocery store would affect your credit rating? What if your late work would positively affect your chances to rent a better flat? This experiment on the so-called “social credit” will take place in China:

Thought for the day

Read in the German subway today: “If you did not make it to an It-Girl (comment: a young female media celebtrity and a socialite), come to us and become an IT-girl!”

Coming soon in my blog: Hannover trade fair, the place where technology meets IT. I am in motion, jumping from a stand to a stand looking for new technological partners. I’ll keep you posted 😉

Fail, repeat and fail again – mathematics of success

The thruth is, all those successful applications for conferences, summer schools, round tables, exchange programs etc. made my career to a game. I know that I will win, and this is only the matter of time and practice.

When people think that what I achieved, meaning all the international summer schools, conferences, projects, employers etc., is a coincidence, they are wrong. The reality is: I have almost no luck, meaning this incredible force that should make your dreams come true with no efforts from your side. Already at school, I learned that, if I don’t learn 2 questions  from 150 and will have 3 questions in my exam, I will have both questions I did not learn in my exam.

The success is as “simple” as mathematics: the more often you fail, the more often you win. If a person would be lucky every 21st try, and he tries only 20 times, he would never see the success and feel like a looser. But the success is not about you trying one time and getting it or not getting it. It is about trying again and again until you have it. I know that the luck is not always on my side, so I do 320% in order to get 100%. Sometimes I have luck, and you may see the result for all those 320%. Nevertheless, this only from time to time.

Neither the luck nor the coincidence lead you to your dreams. However, the simple insistence will do the job. So, do not give up after the first failure – this is only the first step leading you to what you desire!

Kindly yours,

Thought for the day

It’s truly amazing, how people with less opportunities get inspired about simple things.

Being a “cool lady in a suit” myself, I always wonder, why those “cool guys in the suits” always act like I own them. Like I should convince them that I am worth their time, that my ideas are worth their time. They scan me from head to tall, deciding, whether my outfit makes me eligible for a talk with them, the business gods. And it does, and we talk.

Then I go to communes and SMEs and discuss the very same projects with them. And they are burning for changes, they are full of ideas, they are grateful for any attention.

Then the projects become successful. One day later the same people go into Armani, buy a business suits and turn out to be the new generation of “cool guys in the suits”.

The success is a thing that comes and goes. Hopefully, then comes again. If at the point, when you are down, you don’t like who you became, you’re done. It is you who you will always need to work with. It is you who you always should tolerate. Therefore, by all means, try to be a people person you would love to work with. The mask of coolness suits only those who depend on others with the same mask.
